With three kids, I can see being easily stressed, lol. I think you need a spa day, mama! I would also combine the antidepressants with a counselor for help.

It's not normal. But I too am the mother of 3 kids and work full time. I'm not married though. So I understand being easily stressed. But being tired all the time, aggravated with your kids all the time are huge red flags for depression. I know you said you are on antidepressants. But I would also look into counseling for help too.

You sound depressed.  Talk to your doctor.

Unfortunately it seems to be "normal" for a lot of families. You should change your diet so that you can get off the antidepressants. You would be amazed at what a difference healthy eating can make for you and your family! What you eat can be completely contributing to your mood, and exhaustion. 

I would recommend reading about the Whole30 program through the whole9 website: http://whole9life.com/2012/08/the-whole30-program/

or the 21 day sugar detox from balanced bites: http://balancedbites.com/start-here

Not normal but not abnormal with bad diet and a full time job along with 3 kids which is another full time job by itself....new meds will play a big part....make u a dr appointment but while u wait to see doc try eating right and gettin a full 6 to 7 hr sleep and tell him ur research and symptoms....it maybe a chemical imbalance...chin up:)

1 mom liked this

dang!  I didn't know anyone else felt the same way i did..  I was feeling the same way as you.  I recently got put on prozac and that did help with my moods.  I haven;t felt depressed in 3 days.   anyways the pills did help but what helped the most for me is i went to a therapist and he listened.  My husband never has time to  and it really did help me.  Now i don't feel like i am wrong about what i know i should get help with at our home. It gave me back what i feel i was missing and i am making plans to go out with my friends which i gave up but a sista got to have hobbies....  u know....

I hope i helped a littlle

It is normal for me. Ive been like that all my life. I suffer from severe anxiety and depression. Its off and on. If I forget to take vitamins it gets worse. (I dont take antidepressants anymore they caused a huge weight gain)

Yes I sometimes feel that way and NO it is not normal.


I did a eating cleanse, it made it worst at first but now I feel so much better. Antidepressant made me worst and actually suicidal.
